Hasn't really progressed in two starts since debut all in novice company. Down in grade isn't out of this but others make more appeal.

Has shown plenty of pace in both starts and improved from debut in a decent enough race last time. The time backs up the performance and there should be more to come up in trip. Should be a leading contender on these terms.

Reverted to his debut effort on his third start when weakening at halfway. However showed plenty of speed on his second run when just touched off and possible quick ground is the key. Stable won this in 2013 and 2014.

Sets the standard on three good runs so far. Transferred the form of his win and second on the fibresand when another good third on turf debut. Has hit the line strongly each time and likely there's more to come up a furlong.

By Canford Cliffs out of a Kheleyf mare and plenty of speed in pedigree. Market should provide the best guide on debut.

Claimed by new trainer after winning at Ripon. Appreciated the drop in grade but form nothing special and not certain to confirm placings with the third placed Kalissi.

Gelded son of Sir Percy, cost £5,000 as a yearling. Only shown moderate ability in two starts over 5f and likely to need further than this in time.

Son of Prancealot who was a cheap purchase as a yearling and has been well beaten on both starts. Hard to make a case for.

Son of Mazameer who is bred to be speedy, however was sent off long odds on debut when slowly away and green. Hard to recommend on his second start.

By Kodiac out of a Sri Pekan mare who was not fancied and never figured on AW debut. Plenty of improvement required to get involved.

Zebedee colt bought for €14,000 last September. Half-brother to winning stayer Sports Barrow and he did show some improvement on his second start up to this trip. More required and he's likely to be better over further still.

Daughter of Society Rock who cost €17,000 as a yearling and a half-sister to five winners. Bred to need further but stable hitting form and capable of readying a newcomer. Market should provide best guide.

Nice improvement on her second start when placed in a maiden. Extra furlong will only help as she's bred to need further in time. Place possibilities.

Improved significantly from her debut when third in a claimer behind One One Seven on her second start. Likely there's more to come but the form is only moderate and more required.

Forecast

Mr Buttons (6/4), Chains Of Love (8/1), Minas Gerais (8/1), Mazeo Lad (8/1), Ramsbottom (11/1), Spring To Freedom (14/1), One One Seven (16/1), Made In Lewisham (16/1), Queen Of Scheme (20/1), My Ukulele (20/1), Socru (25/1), Abie's Hollow (25/1), Notthewhitehart (28/1), Kalissi (33/1), Maggies Passion (33/1), Habanera (40/1), Smashing Lass (50/1), Percy Drake (50/1), Bottleared (66/1), Prancealong (66/1)

Verdict

MR BUTTONS has run to a consistent level in three starts to date and a reproduction may good enough to take this valuable seller. He represents a leading stable as does Minas Gerais who would be a danger if able to bounce back from a disappointing run last time. The quicker ground should suit as it will Mazeo Lad off the back of a fourth place in a good time and rates the main challenger down to this grade.
